OptiBlur™ Elastomer
CAS No:
Mixture

OptiBlur™ Elastomer is a viscous, high molecular weight combination of dimethicone, beeswax, and cosmetic powders designed to create luxurious products that include optical blurring and soft focus properties, such as color cosmetics, facial products, and moisturizers with a unique velvety texture and matte finish.

Its optical blurring properties help to mask fine lines and wrinkles, minimize the appearance ofpores, and offer a matte finish with a smooth, silky skin feel. It’s ideal for anhydrous or emulsified products, such as foundations, concealers, lip sticks, primers, serums, and moisturizers offering imperfection masking properties. For all skin types, it offers sebum control while moisturizing without oils.

OptiBlur™ Elastomer offers a lubricious skin feel that moisturizes without a feeling of greasiness. In use, it has a feel described as “silky’, “smooth”, or “dry” with a “ball bearing” effect attributed to the inclusion of silicone elastomer spheres coated by silica.

Key Benefits

  • Smooth, velvety feeling in anhydrous and water containing products
  • Designed for “soft focus” beauty products and primers
  • “Imperfection” masking
  • Masks fine lines and wrinkles
  • Minimizes the appearance of pores
  • Offers a matte finish to products
  • High viscosity that can be thinned with silicones for primers
  • Can be processed warm or cold
  • Increases viscosity (non-aqueous)
  • Absorbs or controls sebum

Applications

  • Ideal for facial products where imperfection masking or a “hi-def” filter-like finish is desired
  • Color cosmetics, such as BB creams and contouring sticks as well as foundations and lip products
  • Optical blurring and “soft focus” beauty products
  • Primers
  • Facial care products - anhydrous or emulsion
  • Oil-in-water emulsions
  • Water-in-silicone emulsions
  • Water-in-oil emulsions
  • Anhydrous products

Formulating Guidelines

  • OptiBlur™ Elastomer can be subjected to heat for a short period of time at no more than 60°C (140°F) to prevent the beeswax from melting.
  • As it contains volatile dimethicone fluids, process in a closed container if the temperature reaches or exceeds 60°C (140°F).
  • In the oil phase, ensure it is mixed well to ensure homogeneity.
  • In emulsions, ensure the product has sufficient viscosity to allow it to be dispersed adequately.
  • This elastomer can be thinned down by adding fluid dimethicone or cyclomethicone to the solubility level noted below.
  • It can be mixed using high shear stick blenders or homogenizers, or low shear hand mixers or blending by hand.

Solubility

  • 20% OptiBlur™ Elastomer is miscible with 80% caprylic/capric triglycerides, isododecane, C12-15 alkyl benzoate, cyclomethicone, or phenyltrimethicone
  • 80% OptiBlur™ Elastomer is miscible with 20% phenyltrimethicone or cyclomethicone, but will separate with 20% caprylic/capric triglycerides, isododecane, or C12-15 alkyl benzoate.
  • It is soluble with natural oils, but should be tested in small batches to ensure homogeneity.

Our Customers Say...
I happened upon Lotioncrafter 3 years ago when my business became an idea. To this day I can't find better prices, variety or customer service. As my business becomes a reality I'll be sure to use Lotioncrafter as a source for my ingredients!
Evelyn Alexander, (15 melbourne)

I affectionately refer to Jennifer as "Jenny on the block" even though I am located in Denver. Her service is excellent and I have found no other web-based supplier that takes such great pride in ensuring that you have the highest quality products and most complete technical information available. Jenny, you ROCK!!!

As a maker of high quality oils and incenses, sachets and other scented goodies, I cannot speak highly enough of how satisfied I am to be able to come here, find exactly what I need, put in my order and its in my mailbox so swiftly I wonder if you are sleeping on cots waiting for us to hit that order button. (just kidding). It *is* nice to know when I am running low on a product, I can place my order and know I have no worries; my goods will arrive swiftly, and undamaged and exactly what I ordered; every time. I am so glad I found your site; you have a customer for as long as I can continue to make all the goodies I make. Thank you so much!
Mrs. Cindy Lamprecht, (Harvest Moon Haven)

The best customer service experience I have had in the last 10 years. Based on this alone you have become my number one go to supplier for my cosmetic ingredients.
